The Golden Lampstand

Spread the love

We read above that the golden lampstand that can be seen in the Holy Place of the Tabernacle should be made of pure gold. There was to be no acacia wood or any other material to be used – just pure gold. So straight away, we can see that it symbolized something that is purely divine. Now obviously, it doesn’t take Einstein to know that the primary purpose of a lamp stand is to give light. In fact, it is worth pointing out that this was the only light source in the Holy Place. So let me ask you what in the Bible is said to be a light? Well, the Lord Jesus said “I am the light of the world”. He also said that Christians are the light of the world.

We are the light of the word (Matt 5:16). Our light depends upon our dependence upon Him who is THE LIGHT as the Lord said in John 1:4. The church as a whole is also pictured as a lamp stand in Rev 1:20. We must be a lampstand to this world. So let your light shine upon men that they may glorify our Lord.
